Sadly that's not all there is to Debian stable releases. A major blocker to more stable releases is the need to support them security-wise. And to my knowledge we're currently lacking the manpower to sanely support multiple releases in parallel over a longer time frame.

However, if bugs would be reported earlier (and fixed more quickly), we could keep the freeze much shorter.
